If you're planning to watch TV this weekend, you might see an ad or two for Ubisoft's soon-to-be-released third-person shooter The Division. The publisher is airing at least two different spots for the game, including a "cinematic" trailer and one that contains gameplay footage. You can see both below.

The cinematic trailer explains The Division's story and starts off by referencing Ubisoft's Rabbids franchise. If you're just catching up, a smallpox virus has overtaken Manhattan, sending the city into chaos. You play as a member of The Division, a group of agents called in to make things right again.

This video promotes the Xbox One version of The Division, which is no real surprise given Microsoft's existing co-marketing deal with Ubisoft for the game. As part of this, Microsoft will release a 1 TB Xbox One bundle that comes with the game, while DLC for The Division launches first on Xbox One.

The gameplay video (below) also touches on The Division's story, but showcases actual in-game footage.

In other news about The Division, Ubisoft has outlined the game's free and paid DLC, while the company has also confirmed exactly when The Division's servers will be switched on.

The Division launches on March 8 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It arrives with major expectations, as Ubisoft recently said it could join Destiny, Watch Dogs, and Assassin's Creed to become of the biggest new IP launches ever. You can watch the game's launch trailer here.

The game's open beta attracted 6.4 million players across PC, PS4, and Xbox One, representing a new record for a new IP's beta on new-generation consoles.
